My name is Priya Ravichandran. I am a member of The Takshashila Institution. I write on gender issues, on Balochistan and on Myanmar. I write primarily on my blog Aequalis. I have written frequently for Pragati – The Indian National Interest review, for Business Standard, for Huff post blog, and have articles in DNA and Livemint. My writings are also a part of Takshashila Institution’s edited book Distance from Delhi – A collection of essays on geopolitics, economics and public policy.
The Palanquin Bearers is a poem written by Sarojini Naidu, freedom fighter and a member of India’s constituent assembly. My work here is akin to the bearers in her poem.
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for any comments, suggestions or corrections.
